St Helens' dentist warns parents over kids' dental health

A dentist in St Helen's has warned parents they could be putting their child at risk of tooth decay by not taking advantage of free NHS fluoride varnish treatment. Around a quarter of UK children have tooth decay by the time they start school, with on average 3 teeth being affected, missing or filled. In fact, the British Dental Association states that over 2014 to 2015, 179,218 teeth were removed in children aged 9 and under, making dental decay 1 of the nation's most common childhood diseases and the main reason for Hospital admissions. Fluoride varnish is a free NHS preventative treatment available to all children aged 3 and above providing they are clinically suitable. It offers protections against decay and strengthens teeth. mydentist practice manager Bev Sephton said:- "Statistics show 30% of children didn't see an NHS dentist between 2012 and 2014. Indeed 30m was spent on tooth extractions for under 18's in 2012/2013 (3). We're committed to changing this trend and we are particularly keen for families with young children to register with us, so they can benefit from free NHS fluoride varnish which is normally applied to children's teeth twice a year from the age of 3." mydentist at Victoria Square is part of the largest network of dental care providers in the UK. Its recent makeover has been inspired by what its 7 million UK patients said they wanted from a dentist. "Dental care needs to be professional, but that doesn't mean it can't be friendly too. We were determined to create an environment which was both warm and relaxing." said Ms Henderson. mydentist St Helens is located at 1 Victoria Square, WA10 1HQ. Patients can book an appointment online or call:- 01744 22595.
